Answers to your questions about the Inish Analyser : Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) Part 2


What is Inish Analyser?

Inish Analyser is a simple automated instrument for cell counting, cell viability and transfection efficiency prediction.

  • Label-free : No fluorescent stains or dyes means we don’t waste time on sample preparation and cells remain functional and can be recovered after analysis if required

  • No expensive slides / chambers.

  • High-throughput : Analyse thousands of cells per second.

  • Compatible with a wide variety of cell samples : Cell lines (e.g. Jurkats, CHO cells etc.), primary cells (e.g. T-cells from whole blood), stem cells, yeast cells, sperm cells

  • Easy-to-use compact Benchtop Instrument : Battery operation (3-4hrs before recharge) ensures it fits inside standard biosafety cabinet and operated by simple touchscreen workflow.

Do you have questions about Inish Analyser? Since Inish Anlayser is a great instrument for cell counting, cell viability and transfection efficiency prediction, we’re often asked questions about it.


Here, we’ll answer some of the top questions about this in-demand technology.


Q1 : After the assay, do you have a pure population of live cells?

A1: No - the Inish analyses the cells but it does not sort them or enrich them. The sample is collected in the waste tube and can be recovered.


Q2 : What is the difference between SIM30 and SIM60?

A2 : SIM30 is suitable for analysing cells of 2µm - 12µm in size and SIM60 is suitable for analysing cells of 6µm - 25µm. SIMs are interchangeable - so you don't have to buy a whole new Inish Analyser for each cell size range; just swap out the SIM as shown.

Q3 : What is the storage memory of the Inish Analyser and what is the format of the output file?

A3 : The storage memory of the Inish Analyser is and it can store up to 25,000 files. Typically the size of each file is ~1MB.

The results are displayed as Flow Cytometry Standard FCS scatterplot or CSV.

Q4 : How often do you have to change the waste tube?

A2 : The tubes are to be changed after every assay. If you don't change it and the tube over-fills, liquid will go into the pressure line causing damage to the instrument.


Q5: What is the size of the sample and waste tubes?

A5 : The Volume of the sample and the waste tube is 500µL and they are both available from Cellix.
